Online students and campus students had the chance to meet, network, and enrich their Full Sail experience last week during Campus Connection. The event was a joint effort presented by the Entertainment Business, Music Business, and Sports Marketing & Media programs. All online business students were invited to visit Full Sail’s campus in Winter Park, FL and attend two days of workshops, tours, and presentations. Special offerings included a keynote by Steve Helling of People Magazine and the opportunity to have professional headshots taken on Full Sail’s backlot.
The event was planned as a way to give online students insight into the the campus experience while facilitating interaction with campus students. Visiting students were invited to sit in on regularly scheduled classes to get a feel for campus life. Online students who weren’t able to make the trip to Florida were able to participate in the event via GoToTraining.
Daniel Smith, an Entertainment Business student in the online program, traveled from Tampa, FL to attend Campus Connection. He says the event was a great way to meet people. “It was my first time interacting with a lot of my instructors in person,” he says. “For me, this event sums up what’s great about Full Sail– that they teach to be better than successful. They teach you how to be significant in your industry.”
